so I am at the end of chapter 4 and I noticed I could keep pressing the button unlike before. I kept going and airy said "I SAID STOP" I could keep going after that but I wimped out in case it would screw me. What would happen if you did? I am tempted to go back and try. In fact I will. I will update this topic when I do.
btw my first playthrough so no spoilers beyond chapter 4 please
it's still a spoiler because you're not told you can break the crystals at the start of the game --- GameFAQs Win/Loss Record: 16/30 ; FCs in profile. Currently Playing: Bravely Default, Pokemon X, League of Legends
Breaking a crystal sends you to the "finale" or false ending.
Once you finish that (which might be too hard in chapter 4 unless you use some op combos) you get to see an ending of the game and then you are allowed to continue your game from before you actually break the crystal allowing you to proceed in the game for the true ending (which is attained by not breaking any crystal).
Personally, I suggest breaking a crystal at the end of chapter 7. --- Parents, talk to your children about GameFAQs before it's too late. 3DS FC: 1435-4122-7835 / Pokemon Y IGN: Alexandra / FS: Throh, Machoke, Breloom
You can't break the crystal before Chapter 5. Also, I don't know why you wrote "unlike before," because you can keep pressing the button as early as Chapter 1. --- Currently Playing: Bravely Default, Pokemon Y, League of Legends 3DS Friend Code: 1048-9356-4125
